4. We have new friends in our class – Landin and Sophie.

5. I had more Empower time. (Maricela)

These are some of our wishes:

1. I wish Sophie could be with us. (Landin)

9. We want more time with Mrs. Cassell for more video conferences. (Maricela)

These are some things that aren’t working:

1. Some people are being rude by chasing us and not listening to us when we ask them to stop.

2. We don’t like it when friends get red sticks in their pockets for bad behaviour.

These are some of the ways we can solve our problems:

1. We can ask people who are chasing us to stop. If they don’t stop we need to tell a teacher.

2. We need to learn to control our behaviour by following our Agreements:

Attentive Listening
Mutual Respect
Appreciation/ No Put-Downs
Right to Pass
